Since 1977, Big Brothers Big Sisters Services has served more than 20,000 children in Forsyth and Davie counties. Today, more than 700 children are enrolled in our Community-based, Site-based, Like Skills and C.O.U.L. programs.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
